An item of interest: this one is on Townsend paper, which has a hand-applied sanded surface on Rives BFK. I didn't want to travel far from my prairie theme, but did try different surfaces this season.

I am continuing my review of some of this year's artworks.

Thanks, Sonya.

You are a talent. Just like that. No emotions here, pure fact.)) My two deep inside wings are ready to fly into this painting, it is usual sign when art is right.

Casey Klahn said...

Hey, Irina. Thanks for looking (flying into) this picture.

Katherine Tyrrell said...

Many thanks Casey - and what a gorgeous painting!

Love those earth tones, Casey, this is beautiful! Best wishes to you and your family for a very happy and healthy holiday season - Enjoy!

Merry Christmas, Brian and Katherine. It is so interesting to get communications from New York City and London in this little box.

Then again, I hail from the pony express days, myself.

Beautiful small gem Casey. Love the way you controlled your palette to make a tangible warmth. Merry Christmas!

Thank you, Loriann. Do you know of the artist Russell Chatham? He painted in California, and now in Montana (if I am up to date).
